Lance Stephenson signs with Pelicans
— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) September 9, 2016
While contract details were not reported, it’s worthy to note that the Pelicans have a full roster of guaranteed contracts, so they would have to move a player via trade or waiver in order to make room for Stephenson.
The 6-foot-5 guard/forward hybrid had previously contemplated playing overseas if there wasn’t interest from the NBA.
Stephenson last played for the Memphis Grizzlies, making 26 appearances and posting averages of 14.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists while shooting 47.4-percent from the field.
